Larry's Country Diner-Mo Pitney
Performing At Clay Cooper Theatre
Untouched by the harsh glare of fame, Mo Pitney retains an “aw-shucks” charm. Pitney may still be more fan than star, but his gentle, easy-going phrasing and unpretentious lyrics bring the glitzed-out country scene a breath of crisp air. As music lovers become exposed to his music, rousing receptions may be something he’ll become accustomed to seeing. But they won’t change Mo’s core motivation. “Even if this thing doesn’t go huge, I believe that I can make a decent living playing music,” he says. “And I always knew that I could do that. When I was younger, my plan was bluegrass. I used to buy and sell cars; I did body work and trained bird dogs. I figured I would just kind of piddle around, doing different things around the music. People who have done this for a long time think there’s a place for my music, and I hope that’s the case. My eyes are set on being successful, but success is not number one for me. If I can make a comfortable living and have a career making music and keep my head on straight, that’s my goal. And I think that I have a great opportunity to do that if I don’t get ahead of myself.” And that kind of seasoned perspective isn’t often heard from someone of his generation. “I’m a God-fearing man,” he says. “I love simple things. I love simplicity in songs because I love simplicity in life. But I’m also very deep, which is weird. I’m a thinker. And I go so deep, a lot of times, I just confuse myself and get frustrated, but when I come home and my dog runs and jumps up on my lap, that does something to my spirit. I love to hunt and fish. I love the outdoors. I love my family. I try to live pretty morally square. Pretty clean guy. I’ve got my problems, but I try to stay pretty straight.”
